Ember countries of the World Trade Organization (WTO) have actively used the WTO dispute settlement system during the first five years and filed 187 complaints as of April 2000. The United States and the European Union were the most active participants, both as plaintiffs and defendants. Out of 25 cases in which the United States was a plaintiff, the United States prevailed in a final WTO dispute settlement ruling in 13 cases, resolved the dispute without a ruling in 10 cases, and did not prevail in two cases. As a defendant in 17 cases, the United States prevailed in one case, resolved the dispute without a ruling in 10 cases, and lost in six cases. Overall, GAO's analysis shows that the United States has gained more than it has lost in the WTO dispute resolution system so far. WTO cases have resulted in a large number of changes in foreign trade practices, while their effect on U.S. laws and regulations has been minimal. This testimony summarizes the June 2000 report, GAO/NSIAD/OGC-00-196BR, June 14 (36 pages)

Federal, state, and local government agencies have differing roles with regard to public health emergency preparedness and response. The federal government conducts a variety of activities, including developing interagency response plans, increasing state and local response capabilities, developing and deploying federal response teams, increasing the availability of medical treatments, participating in and sponsoring exercises, planning for victim aid, and providing support in these of disaster and during special events such as the Olympic games. One of its main functions is to provide support for the primary responders at the state and local level, including emergency medical service personnel, public health officials, doctors, and nurses. This support is critical because the burden of response falls initially on state and local emergency response agencies. The President's proposal transfers control over many of the programs that provide preparedness and response support for the state and local governments to a new Department of Homeland Security. Among other changes, the proposed legislation transfers HHS's Office of the Assistant Secretary for Public Health Emergency Preparedness to the new department. Included in this transfer is the Office of Emergency Preparedness (OEP), which currently leads the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) in conjunction with several other agencies and the Metropolitan Medical Response System (MMRS). The Strategic National Stockpile currently administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), would also be transferred, although the Secretary of HHS would still manage the stockpile and continue to determine its contents. The President's proposal would also transfer the select agent registration enforcement program from HHS to the new department
